During our National Championships for both V/JV and MS/ES divisions, International Academic Competitions organizes National Championship Exams across numerous academic disciplines. The exams will be offered on various fields of history, science, and political science as explained below. Ambitious Middle School and Elementary School students are also welcome to compete in the Junior Varsity Division of the exams which are offered at JV Nationals in Arlington, VA in April(though the questions will be written at a challenging high school level of difficulty).
Each exam will consist of 75 multiple choice questions with each correct answer worth 2 points, an incorrect response worth -1 point, and an answer left blank worth 0 points. The time limit will be 30 minutes for each exam. Ties will be broken through 3 tiebreaker questions with numerical answers. Each exam costs $20 and students will be ranked against other students in their age division. No prior qualification is needed to take any of the exams. Medals will be awarded to the top students in each division at their respective Nationals.
A complete schedule of exams and all other events at the IAC National Championships can be found on the relevant page of the Nationals website here.
